  1. I only wish I could pull off a look like that! I don't think my eyes are the right shape for it, though? :/ And also, the lash envy! It burns. (;

  5. is there any eye shape that would not look good with the cat eye?

  6. thanks everyone :)
    Lydia.fair : honestly, the winged "cat eye" liner effect is very flattering on pretty much every eye shape. It enhances already "open", upturned eye shapes, and works to open up and create a more flattering shape for downturned eye shapes that can sometimes look droopy.

  9. this looks awesome. I always have such a hard time with only putting liner on the top and not the bottom. Without my bottom liner I feel naked!

  10. I have a Mac 15 eyeshadow palette that I want to fill. I like mostly neutrals, and I was hoping you could give me some suggestions for my palette. Are there some Mac colors that you consider 'must haves'? I would really appreciate the help, its a bit overwhelming all the color choices. Thanks, love all your videos!

  18. Thank you for this lovely look, which I recreated today with lots of success ;). I do have very long lashes as well and wonder how you manage not to smear the liquid eye liner into the tips of your lashes, because this is what happens to me very often. It is hard to get it off and makes my lashes clump together when I put on the mascara. Lovely, thanks again xoxo

  44. This helped me out so much, so thank you! I have been looking for the perfect cat-eye look that I thought I could pull off, and this seems so easy to do! It's the only thing I have found that I'm not afraid to try. Since there is not too much color and I can wear it everyday. I reminds me of Taylor Swift, which is something I have been really trying to do. Since she has smaller eyes its hard to tell exactly what she has done to them. This is close! Its not too dramatic or overwhelming which I simply love. Ah, alright I think I'm done gushing. Again, thanks so much for making this.
